the cassette concaves are about 200.00 and the linear boards are about 75.00. is there a huge riding difference?

scapes are flat form side to side, and the concave HL boards(gate, catalyst)are curved from side to side. Hope that makes sense.

can't help you out with the other.

i think it depends on your ability, i ride a lot better behind the concave, but some people ride good on both

Well the only concave I have ridden is the gate. And yes there is a lot of difference in the way it rides compared to the scape. I started on the scape at the first of the summer, and was progressing pretty good, then I got the gate a few weeks definitely has a learning curve to it, at least in my opinion. I have only rode the gate maybe 10 runs though....So I am still getting the feel for it. Landed my first air 180 on this past weekend. It launches you on jumps a lot more, but it is harder to land on it. It rides a lot looser than the scape also. Easier to do lip tricks with it.

Go with the concave cassette.

Jason, do you think the gate is worth the price tag?

well I got a really good deal on mine, so yes for the price I paid. Is it worth the $230 I have seen it for, I would wait for a smaller size, then yes. I like it, just takes time to get use to it.
